Rails, accepts_nested_attributes_for has_many: through with build

I have 3 models:

class Product < ActiveRecord::Base
has_many :product_option_types
has_many :option_types, through: :product_option_typesend
class OptionType < ActiveRecord::Base
has_many :product_option_types
has_many :products, through: :product_option_typesend
class ProductOptionType < ActiveRecord::Base
belongs_to :product
belongs_to :option_typeend

Table OptionType is predefined with following:

[image: enter image description here]

Now when creating new Product i need to populate also table
product_option_types with product_id and option_type id: Here is the
of product_option_types table:

[image: enter image description here]

Far as i know i need accepts_nested_attributes_for in Product model to
refference product_option_types, so in product model i need following

accepts_nested_attributes_for :product_option_types, allow_destroy: true

Before rendering new.html.erb then i need to build product_option_types
the following way ?

@product = [email protected]_option_types.build(position: 1)

In the view new.html.erb i’m using collection_select to display

<%= f.fields_for :product_option_types do |builder| %>
<%= builder.label :option_type_id, “Options” %>
<%= builder.collection_select :option_type_id, OptionType.all(order:
‘name ASC’),
:id, :name, { prompt: “Select
option…”} %><% end %>

Finally in the crate action of product controller i must permit also
association attributes like:

permited = params[:product].permit(product_option_types_attributes:

So main question is, did i set up accepts_nested_attributes_for, build,
collection_select and associations correctly?

+: When im building associoation with parameters like:

@product.product_option_types.build(position: 1)

Then to pass that information(position: 1) to create action i must use
hidden_field in form?
